There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where the Crimean war still rages, dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is deeply disappointed by the ending of 'Jane Eyre'. In this world there are no jet-liners or computers, but there are policemen who can travel across time, a Welsh republic, a great interest in all things literary - and a woman called Thursday Next.
In this utterly original and wonderfully funny first novel, Fforde has created a fiesty, loveable heroine and a plot of such richness and ingenuity that it will take your breath away.

Story good and narrator excellent. But the skipping is frankly amateurish - it often does it at crucial story moments. I'm surprised that before releasing it, they don't actually seem to have listened to it.
Poor quality recording
The narrator and story are both great. The main problem is with the recording itself. It repeats itself and regularly skips chunks of text. Be warned.
